    Hey all,

    My brother in law just got me a universe legend Warpath. While i do like his robot mode, i was a little bit disappointed with his tank mode. The tank just seem like it was a bit backwards, and the turret was lacking some articulation. I shaved of the tab that hangs in front of his turret as it was blocking it from turning around. It doesn't mess up his robot mode much, but it made a huge difference in the tank mode. I am sure someone else has done this before so forgive me if this is old. I will also apologize for the crappy photo since my wife took my camera with her on her business trip. I will get clearer images if you guys want.

    No apologies necessary for the photos, as I'm grateful your wife was willing to take them and support your hobby :)  That being said, some clearer photos would be great too :) 

    I really like this toy, and was very pleasantly surprised with how cool he is when I got him. :)

    I got lucky and found one of these locally. I did same little mod mod on mine as well. I totally agree that his tank mode looks sort of backwards with those divided treads up front. This is a big improvement!

    That looks much better. If I had seen this mod, I would have gotten him.

    Crappy photos, nothing. Dude, they're IN FOCUS and that makes them better than 80% of the photos posted.

    So many people spend hour after painful hour to create something they are proud of, only to give us perfect pictures of their DVD collection 15 feet away and a Transformer-shaped blob only an inch from the camera.

    So, your mod may be minor... BUT WE CAN SEE IT. Extra points. Don't sell yourself short.

    I like it! I don't have the toy myself, but I prefer your version of the tank mode.

    Come to think of it, when Hasbro releases tank toys not based on a real-life tank, I find myself preferring the backwards configuration. Example: I display Animated Shockwave with his turret facing backwards. Same problem with Warpath. Hasbro's official alt mode has Shockwave and Warpath's front treads exposed, and the rear treads have armor over them.

    Awesome! I always wondered if removing that tab would be do-able without ruining the bot’s robot-mode look too much. Works a treat going by the photos, and I’m thinking of submitting mine to the procedure.

    yeah, it doesn't affect the robot mode much. If you want to bring some of the red back into the torso area, you can always paint the grey area, there's even a protruded region that will be perfect for some paint apps. I was going to do that, but haven't had any time yet.
